I think everybody knew it was coming, but no one quite expected it this quick. Last year when I interviewed Marty with the Reds Caravan, he said it would be a year-to-year decision. When you have done something as long as Marty has, it is very hard to tell yourself it is time to quit. People say that you know when the time comes to say it is over, so it is obvious that something this past summer told him “now is the time”.The news media hinted that the thought came to him when he was on vacation in Europe this summer. Getting a taste of the freedom to travel was probably what set the wheels in motion.Like most of us who have listened to Marty over the years, we wish him well. We will certainly miss “And, this one belongs to the Reds!”

(AP Photo/Kyusung Gong)ExpandANAHEIM — The Angels demonstrated on Wednesday night that they are worth watching, no matter what the standings say.There’s Mike Trout, and Shohei Ohtani. And even Albert Pujols still occasionally will do something historic.Trout belted two homers and Ohtani hit one monster shot, part of the Angels’ 11-3 drubbing of the Chicago White Sox at Angel Stadium. After losing the first two games of the series against the last-place White Sox, the Angels put everything together in a rollocking victory.“We did a lot of things the way we need to do on the field,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “It’s not always going to materialize in this many runs, but it was fun to watch.” This time he added a homer to right, to go with his first-inning blast to left. Trout now has 28 homers this season.It marked the 13th multi-homer game of Trout’s career, and his third this year. He drove in four runs for the second time this season.It was particularly impressive that Trout could have that kind of night when he’s been seeing so few strikes lately. He walked six times in the previous two games.“Just keeping my strike zone and being patient,” Trout said. “When I’m trying to do too much or getting out of my zone, that’s when I get in trouble.”In between Trout’s homers, Ohtani launched a 446-foot blast to right-center in the fifth inning. It was the second-longest homer of the nine he’s hit this year, which have all come at Angel Stadium. He hit a 449-foot homer in April.It was the first time in the three months that Trout, Ohtani and Pujols have been in the lineup together that they’ve all homered in the same game.Somewhat lost amid the offensive outburst was another strong performance from Skaggs, who now has a 1.44 ERA over his last eight starts.Skaggs, who had some first-inning trouble lately, said he went through his warm-up routine in a more methodical fashion this time.“Instead of throwing to get loose, throw with actual intent,” he said.It worked. He began the game in dominant fashion not seen in a generation with the Angels. Skaggs struck out the first five hitters of the game, the first Angels pitcher to do that since Jim Abbott on Sept. 19, 1995.Related Articles Skaggs retired the first 10 hitters — seven on strikeouts — before allowing a hit. The White Sox hit a couple balls hard against him in the third inning, including an Avisail Garcia 108 mph grounder that skipped past Andrelton Simmons for an error, and they scored two runs, one earned.After that, Skaggs tacked on two more zeroes before turning the game over to the bullpen to finish off the comfortable victory.“It definitely makes baseball a lot more fun,” Skaggs said of the offensive outburst. “I go out and feel like I’m pitching well. We’re scoring a lot of runs. It’s good to be an Angel when that happens.”Games this could almost make an Angels fan forget that the team is still 51-52 and 10-1/2 games behind the Seattle Mariners for the second AL wild card spot.With less than a week to go before the trading deadline, there figure to be changes coming for the Angels, but Scioscia was giving no hints before Wednesday’s game.“I don’t think there’s an hour that goes by that Billy (Eppler) is not looking to improve our club,” Scioscia said. “I don’t think he would shy away from trying to make us better, but I have no indication either way.” Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Clippers, Mavericks brace for the unknown in Game 4 Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Tyler Skaggs gave up one earned run in six innings, striking out nine, as he continued his stretch of dominance. Kole Calhoun and David Fletcher each had two hits. Even slumping Luis Valbuena had a two-run double.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.And Pujols had a couple noteworthy accomplishments. He hit homer No. 631 — to pass Ken Griffey Jr. and move into sixth on the all-time list. He also stole his first base of the season, when White Sox pitcher James Shields ignored him and he was halfway to third by the time he released his pitch.“It seems like every hit or homer or double he’s passing somebody,” Trout said. “He probably passed someone with that stolen base. He puts that cape on every once in a while. It’s pretty cool.Despite all that entertainment, the night belonged mostly to Trout, with one more memorable highlight added to Ohtani’s reel. It came on the first night that the Angels put Ohtani in front of Trout in the batting order.Trout opened the scoring with a solo homer in the first inning. He doubled in the third. After getting hit by a pitch in the middle of the Angels’ four-run fifth, he came up in the sixth with runners at the corners.

DES MOINES — AARP Iowa held the first of what will be several education sessions Wednesday on a new law for family caregivers that goes into effect Monday.The group’s advocacy director Anthony Carroll says the CARE Act will make an impact across the state. “Family caregivers represent the majority of long-term services and support. With over 317-thousand family caregivers who provide care to loved ones in unpaid fashion every day,” Carroll says.The law requires hospitals to give patients the opportunity to name a caregiver at the start of the process. “If you’re going into a hospital with a loved one as a family caregiver — you perhaps don’t even identify yourself yet as a family caregiver,” Carroll says. “So, having the hospital ask a patient and loved one ‘do you have a family caregiver that you are going home to, would you like to record them and put them into your medical record’?”There is also followup to the initial notation of a caregiver. “And if you do chose to designate a caregiver — that caregiver is notified before the patient is sent home. And then, last but not least, there’s an opportunity have a discussion about the caregiver’s abilities, limitations, and an opportunity to receive instructions on any medical care needed before that patient is sent home — rather than you get home and realize, what do I need to do, how do I need to do this,” according to Carroll.He says the process is designed to take the surprises out of the situation for the caregiver. “Thinking from the git-go what you might need to do. Being prepared to ask questions, and then hopefully alleviating the stress that comes with that situation, being thrust in that role perhaps unanticipated after the fact,” Carroll says. “So, that’s really the idea, elevating family caregivers, helping them think about it upon admission.”Carroll says they also understand the issues facing healthcare providers and this should help them better server patients.“The provider themselves actually has a better understanding of what exactly care reality or support reality is this patient returning home to,” he says.Carroll says AARP has information available to help you understand the new law. “There’s free downloadable cards available — you don’t have to be an AARP member — there’s no cost, at www.AARP/IA. Again, that’s an opportunity for people to understand what the new law is. You can detach a wallet card and put it in your pocket,” Carroll says. He says they have been working with the area agencies on aging and other groups to get the information out about the new law.
But the complexity of automated environments that use containers mean that if security of the underlying components aren’t properly configured, they can cause problem that are harder to find and much harder to correct later. Container and non-container security issues that arise are actually not so different. For example, one of the biggest problems in both types of environments is simply ignoring security, like keeping default security permissions. Is container security a problem? Not really. But the nature of containers mean that container security needs to be done carefully and early in an implementation. Amir Jerbi, co-founder and CTO of Aqua Security, told InformationWeek that “vulnerabilities in container images — running containers with too many privileges, not properly hardening hosts that run containers, not configuring Kubernetes in a secure way — any of these, if not addressed adequately, can put applications at risk.” Richard Henderson, head of global threat intelligence for Lastline, said that “containers, while a boon to many developers and IT organizations, are just as susceptible to bugs and vulnerabilities as any other technology tool or platform. Keeping that in mind, it means we have to keep our eyes open for threats targeting the underlying products we’re using and make patching a critical imperative. Attackers waste no time exploiting issues that are disclosed.”
